Missouri AG Intervenes In McCloskey Case

From Law Enforcement Today:

“As Missouri’s chief law enforcement officer, I simply will not stand by while Missouri laws are being ignored.
“That is why I am entering the case in terms of seeking the dismissal of the case to protect the rights of Missourians to defend themselves in their property under Missouri’s castle doctrine.”

SPLC Attacks Stand Your Ground Laws

From Ricochet:

The nonsense from the Southern Poverty Law Center continues. The SPLC, which doesn’t actually do poverty law because it’s too busy labeling everyone with insufficient melanin in their skin as racist, would like to turn back the clock on Stand Your Ground laws. In a new report, they claim with no real evidence or analysis, that the laws promote killings of blacks by whites. This is nonsense, and they know it. But it comes at the perfect time: with police running from constant assault and the rest of the country being told that only black lives matter. You almost have to admire their moxie.

Vigilance Is Key When Carrying

From The Truth About Guns:

Yesterday in Shreveport, Louisiana, a man returned to his home at 3:00pm and was met by two intruders who were attempting a burglary. Fortunately, the homeowner was carrying his gun at the time and was ready to be his own first responder.

The man drew his gun and shot both of the suspects, killing one and wounding the other. The deceased was a 40-year-old man who has not yet been identified. The other suspect, 47-year-old Martin Davenport, was charged with aggravated burglary and booked into Shreveport City Jail.
